In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. They spent between six and thirteen years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against the backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, this documentary tells the story of a horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice. Discussion to follow with Yusef Salaam, one of the Central Park Five, and his family.
